Storm in Florida peninsula not expected to develop


From staff and wire reports

According to the National Hurricane Center, a trough of low pressure near the Florida peninsula continues to produce disorganized showers and thunderstorms extending across the Bahamas, southern Florida and the adjacent waters. Development, if any, of this system should be slow to occur while it drifts north to northeast during the next day or two.

The NHC is giving this area of disturbed weather only a 10 percent chance to develop in the next 48 hours and 30 percent over the next five days.

Regardless of development, very heavy rain and flooding is possible over portions of the Florida peninsula during the next few days, according to NHC.
